It's the shocking revelation shaking up the New York mayor's race one more time. Anthony Weiner claimed to be a changed man after he resigned Congress in the wake of a sexting scandal. But it turns out, the sexting didn't stop.

In a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Anthony Weiner acknowledged that he sent previously undisclosed explicit messages and inappropriate photos to a woman during summer of
2012, during the year after he publicly resigned from Congress amid a scandal for similar behavior.

But Weiner says that this time, the embarrassing news won't force him out of the mayor's race in New York. Do you think the disgraced politician should drop out of the race?

    If you can't trust a man to respect and honor the woman he's married to you certainly can't trust him to respect and honor the city he lives in. He is a self-centered man who only cares about himself. That never translates well into public service.

    Unfortunately yes because what he is doing isn't considered appropriate for the job he is after. However, I have no problem with his sexting problem as long as its not to minors. Really, that's his personal business and if that's how he communicates to other women and those women are ok with it, then that's there thing. Really no different than a guy and gal hooking up. I think it's getting blown out of proportion. If you poll the audience, most of us have done something somewhat similar with our spouse, significant other, or some random partner.

    Really? We are already a world laughing stock. Obama is pathetic . His policies are weak and he will get us into a another war. We need STRONGER politicians not weiners. It's a sickness and he wont be able to stop . His wife is pathetic and has no self respect. Neither does he. If he wins, New Yorkers will show their liberal stupidity.

    First of all, Obama has nothing to do with this topic. So just by you inserting him into to it leads me to believe you are no more than a person who hates Obama and anything a democrat stands for which further leads me to believe that your points are worthless in reading. But since I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt, I'll continue. Secondly in my comment I said what he is doing isn't considered appropriate for the job he is after. So in that sense, I agree with you. So what's with the "really" response that you responded with? But then what's really strange is that you say Obama will get us into another war. Genius, Bush Sr got us in the Desert Storm war and Bush Jr got us into 2 wars after that. The last three wars have been with Republican Presidents. And you got the nerve to talk about liberal stupidity??? Plz.....Republican politicians do stupid things too by the way. Did you defend Mark Sanford?

    While a politician's sex life is hardly of paramount importance to me in making voting decisions, Weiner's is indicative of severe character defects. He should develop a sense of shame and leave politics forever.

    He should pull out of everywhere.
    Flashers get there kicks out of startling others.
    Don't give him a stage to shock millions at a time.
    It's all he is about.
    His jobs are all sidelines.
    We need politicians who at least care when they get the job.
